Impact Statement

In 2014, America On Track continued to serve approximately 10,000 unduplicated individuals per year and goals/outcomes were met and/or exceeded in all AOT programs, as evaluated by the Center for Applied Research Solutions.

Following are highlights of some of America On Track’s 2014 Accomplishments:

 

  • AOT staff continued to support existing mentor-mentees matches while also initiating new matches in our Brighter Futures for Children of Prisoners program. AOT is currently serving 502 unduplicated individuals (including children of prisoners, family members, and mentors). AOT launched its STEM program with the children of prisoners. The 8th annual College Is For Me Too! Summer Education Camp took place at CSUF at the end of June and was a big success. And, AOT distributed hundreds of age-appropriate books to promote reading and interest in education.
  • For our Emerging Leaders Program, AOT staff recruited, trained, and worked with 305 teen leaders and protégés at the Irvine and Santa Ana Emerging Leaders sites and conducted 59 leadership and training sessions at those sites.
  • AOT staff conducted 223 nutrition education presentations to a total of 6,209 SNAP-Ed Eligible individuals.
  • AOT staff continued to provide weekly physical education and nutrition education sessions for over 1,700 students at 9 school sites.
  • Policy efforts to reduce exposure to secondhand smoke yielded the following results: 11 Multi-Unit Housing complexes and 1 Condominium Association adopted a 100% smoke-free policy including individual units and balconies, representing a total of 720 residential units; 35 licensed residential child care facilities adopted 100% smoke-free policies for their properties 24/7, and 13 restaurants adopted smoke-free outdoor dining policies.
  • In order to lower youth access to tobacco, AOT staff worked with 274 tobacco retailers and conducted over 800 merchant education training sessions with them, which led to lowering the number of retailers willing to sell tobacco to minors to zero. Additionally, AOT staff conducted over 100 presentations to 1,073 business, civic group, and parent organization members.

Programs


Brighter Futures for Children of Prisoners

America On Track has a highly customized, time-proven program for children of prisoners that was launched in 2004. Our Brighter Futures For Children of Prisoners program is designed to empower the most vulnerable high-risk youth in our society by providing them with opportunities for life-long success.

 

The one-on-one mentoring component matches trained, screened and carefully selected adults with children of prisoners ages 7 to 17. Mentors are required to see their mentees 3 to 4 times per month and provide 8 hours of mentoring per month for a minimum of one year. America On Track mentees are often matched with mentors for 2 to 6 years, actually working with them through middle school and high school. Our mentors are from all walks of life, and many are either college students or already in STEM professions and collectively they increase the interest and confidence of children of prisoners in these academic areas as well as in fields suited to their talents.

 

The other components of our Brighter Futures for Children of Prisoners program compliment the mentoring component by adding year-round comprehensive, innovative and creative activities as well as wrap-around services/resources for their families. Our motto for this program is: Every Child Deserves The Chance To Discover A Brighter Future, which is why America On Track provides STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) workshops, a “College is For Me Too” over-night summer camp experience, a Holiday Party & gifts, Honda Center outings, nutrition seminars and age-appropriate books for children of prisoners in addition to providing them with caring mentors.

Program Long-Term Success 
The purpose of our community-based Brighter Futures for Children of Prisoners program is to provide a holistic approach in transforming the lives of children of prisoners and their families.  It begins with creating quality, lasting (12 months or more), one-on-one mentor/mentee relationships that provide children of prisoners with caring role models for future success. Our goal is to provide effective mentoring relationships and a safety net for children of prisoners to reduce mentee risk behaviors and therefore also reduce the likelihood of the mentee's future involvement in the criminal justice system. Additionally, our objective is to provide wrap around services and coordinate support services to the women who care for the children of prisoners such as information and referrals for clothing, employment, food, housing and vision care and other services as needed.
 
The general, long-term goal is to see these children blossom into productive adults rather than follow in their incarcerated parent’s footsteps. The overall goal is to help them improve their academic skills, become more confident, stay drug-free, stay in school, set goals for the future and aspire to go to college, ensure that they have equal opportunities to pursue STEM-related jobs, while reducing mentee risk factors and therefore also reducing the likelihood of the mentee's future involvement in the criminal justice system. Additionally, our goal is to increase family support services for mothers/caregivers of children of prisoners.
Program Success Monitored By 
A Quality Assurance Team (composed of the President, Executive Director and staff members) works with an outside evaluation firm, the Center for Applied Research Solutions, to perform annual evaluations of AOT programs. The evaluation focuses on both process measures, e.g. number of mentors involved, number of mentees involved, frequency and length of contact, kinds of mentor-mentee contact, hours of mentor training given etc., as well as outcome measures, e.g. individual outcomes, based on pre- and post-participation surveys, case files, school reports, case worker reports, and self-reports.
 
Since 2000, AOT has hired the Center for Applied Research Solutions and they will continue to evaluate our programs using science-based tools utilizing standardized and locally developed measures.
Examples of Program Success 
The following quote from a mentee illustrates the value of AOT’s support to children of prisoners:
 
“America On Track has changed my life. The guidance from my mentors has been an important factor that helped me be where I am today. This fall, I will be attending a 4-year University and studying to be a High School math teacher. On Track introduced me to three of the most inspirational women in my life. My mentors were able to talk to me about anything that came to my mind and answer questions related to their studies in school or careers. Seeing how successful and hardworking they were pushed me throughout the hard times in middle school and high school. Without this program and my mentors, the push to succeed would have been less because I wouldn’t have had the role models to look up to and the support I received throughout the years.” ~ Mimi, former mentee who is still in touch with AOT
 
Mimi and her sister Honey participated for 8 years and now they are off to college!

Emerging Leaders

America On Track’s Emerging Leaders program is about developing future leaders! The program, formerly known as Kids On Track ... Through Mentoring & Fitness, has an 18-year science-based track record and has been teaming up with educators, civic leaders, outstanding high school students, and elementary school children.
The goal is to inspire today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders through a focus on academics and planning for college, increased knowledge about fitness and nutrition, drug use prevention, classical music and the arts, and strong skills in public speaking.
The 4-hour after school weekly program is led by dedicated America On Track staff members and volunteers. The teen mentors receive personalized coaching from Terry Thompson and Claire Braeburn in order to build leadership as well as mentoring skills.
After intensive training, qualified teen mentors are then matched with 4th, 5th and 6th grade student mentees. The mentor/mentee teams interact in a nurturing supervised group setting. Mentees at participating schools are nominated by school administrators in order to join America On Track’s Emerging Leaders program.
America On Track’s Emerging Leaders program offers a synergistic forum for all participants to develop strong public speaking skills, positive values as well as opportunities for a brighter future.
Budget  $101,808.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Leadership
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 

Our science-based evaluations have shown that both the teen leaders and the protégés benefit from the Emerging Leaders program. It benefits the high school students because even though they are matched one-on-one with a protégé, these dedicated teens are within a structured group setting and they themselves are guided by highly qualified AOT staff members who are there with them at all of our year-round multi-modal leadership sessions. These teens/volunteers are given extensive mentoring and leadership development training as well as opportunities to make a difference in a child’s life, voice their opinions, experience the rewards of community service work, strengthen leadership qualities, and learn asset-building techniques. The protégés benefit by increasing leadership skills, developing and/or enhancing public speaking skills, improving academic performance, increasing participation in moderate to vigorous physical activity, improving health habits, and establishing long-term mentoring relationships.

Program Long-Term Success 

The goal is to inspire today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders through a focus on academics and planning for college, increased knowledge about fitness and nutrition, community needs, drug use prevention, classical music and the arts, and strong skills in public speaking.  It also helps create a life-long commitment to volunteering.

Since 2000, AOT has hired the Center for Applied Research Solutions  and they will continue to evaluate our programs using science-based tools utilizing standardized and locally developed measures.
Examples of Program Success 

For the past 18 years, America On Track's Emerging Leaders program has underdone yearly science-based evaluations by one of the nation’s most respected evaluation firms. Year after year, the Emerging Leaders program has been rated at the level of “excellence” and has generated the following comment by the President of the Center for Applied Research Solutions:

“Based on my experience, I think you have one of the most outstanding leadership and youth development programs I have examined.”


On Track Through Fitness

The On Track Through Fitness project is a comprehensive physical activity, health, and nutrition program that directly serves 2,500 K-12 students to help them meet State Standards. On Track Through Fitness was designed by incorporating multiple evidence-based model programs to serve disadvantaged Hispanic youth living in the most impoverished neighborhoods in Santa Ana, California.
America On Track, with eight Physical Education Program (PEP) collaborative community partners, addresses critical gaps as well as enhances health and fitness services at the target schools. The 8 PEP partners are: 1) the Orange County Department of Education/ACCESS Schools; 2) the County of Orange Health Care Agency; 3) the City of Santa Ana, including the City Parks & Recreation Agency; 4) Dr. Clay Sherman, Professor at CA State University, Fullerton, Department of Kinesiology; 5) Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Orange; 6) Northgate Markets (local supermarket chain that supports nutrition and healthy eating); 7) Dr. Alberto Gedissman, AltaMed Health Services (medical obesity prevention specialist affiliated with large local primary care provider); and 8) the Center for Applied Research Solutions “CARS” (lead Evaluator).

Tobacco Prevention Projects

America On Track is implementing two comprehensive tobacco prevention projects aimed at Lowering Youth Access to Tobacco and Reducing Exposure to Secondhand Smoke.

America On Track has had great success for the past 18 years with the Lowering Youth Access to Tobacco project in the cities of Anaheim, La Habra, Mission Viejo, Newport Beach, Orange, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Juan Capistrano and Santa Ana. Our goal is to decrease youth access to tobacco. Data show that the two major sources of youth access to tobacco are tobacco retailers and social sources. Therefore, America On Track works with local tobacco retailers and their patrons to ensure that everyone is abiding by laws that prohibit selling or providing tobacco to a minor.

For the Reducing Exposure to Secondhand Smoke project, AOT focuses on legislative and voluntary policies. Our target population is predominantly Latino and people of low socioeconomic status. Current objectives include: Smoke-free Multi-Unit Housing; Smoke-free Outdoor Dining; Smoke-free Residential Childcare Facilities; and Smoke-free Parks.

Budget  $351,247.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Public Health
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Hispanic, Latino Heritage
Program Short-Term Success 

In 2014, AOT worked with 274 tobacco retailers in the cities of Mission Viejo, Newport Beach (including Corona del Mar), Orange, Rancho Santa Margarita, and San Juan Capistrano. AOT staff conducted over 800 merchant education training sessions with the commercial tobacco retailers, which led to the following results:

 

  • Lowered the number of retailers will to sell tobacco to minors to zero;
  • Helped 235 out of 274 (86.4%) commercial tobacco retailers become compliant with window signage laws;
  • Helped 207 out of 274 (75%) commercial tobacco retailers reach the 5 Star Merchant status;
  • Raised by 179% the number of people who knew the $200 fine for providing tobacco to a minor from year 1 to year 3.

 

Additionally, AOT staff conducted over 100 presentations to businesses, civic groups, and parent organizations and collected 2,147 pre and post surveys.

Program Long-Term Success 

America On Track has had numerous successes in community organizing and community norm change over the years with many of our projects, including our tobacco control projects.

AOT has successfully implemented and consistently met and/or exceeded project goals year after year, thereby positively impacting youth tobacco use prevalence by conducting tobacco prevention education with youth, parents, business leaders and civic group leaders, partnering with local law enforcement to assess illegal tobacco sales, conducting merchant education, developing and implementing a social sources educational campaign, and establishing and maintaining a recognition program that rewards responsible tobacco retailers.

During the period of July 1, 2010, to December 31, 2014, AOT successfully got 105 voluntary smoke-free policies adopted at apartments, restaurants, and childcare facilities.

Program Success Monitored By  The Center for Applied Research Solutions evaluates our programs using science-based tools utilizing standardized and locally developed measures.
Examples of Program Success 

Efforts under the Reducing Exposure to Secondhand Smoke project have yielded the following results to date: 28 Multi-Unit Housing complexes have adopted a 100% smoke-free policy including individual units and balconies, representing a total of 2,434 residential units; 38 licensed residential child care facilities have adopted 100% smoke-free policies for their properties, 39 restaurants have adopted smoke-free outdoor dining policies, and the City of Santa Ana passed a Smoke-Free Parks ordinance.

These 105 voluntary smoke-free policies and the City Smoke-Free Parks ordinance represent a healthier, cleaner environment both indoors and outdoors for our targeted priority population of Hispanic and low socioeconomic individuals – which is creating a better quality of life.
